It is not very often that I get this excited about one of my recipes! During hot summer months, the last thing I want to do is bake in a hot kitchen. As we currently have a heat wave, I developed a gluten-free dessert recipe that will keep you cool and can be whipped up in minutes. This gluten-free lemon coconut bar is delightfully zesty, refreshingly cold and tastes almost like coconut ice cream. A must-have dessert this summer!
Italy, coffee and mascarpone cheese go hand in hand – that’s always my first thought whenever I think of Italian cuisine and culture. I’m not a huge coffee lover though, I don’t drink it unless I’m in immediate need of an energy boost, but I love its aroma early in the morning and its flavor in desserts. And I love mascarpone cheese as well – the kind of love that gets close to addiction sometimes. Therefore when I was asked to come up with an Italian inspired dish, Tiramisu was my first thought. But since I like thinking outside of the box, I took the basic idea of a Tiramisu and elevated it to the next level.
